“Shemmy and I like to support organizations that we know are having a real-life impact on the communities they serve, particularly when those communities are close to home…we know very well that NYLPI’s clients benefit from the critical legal services they receive, services that not only improve the lives of NYLPI’s clients, but of all of the residents of our City. Through its community partnerships, NYLPI targets the issues that city residents are focused on, and addresses them in an efficient and practical way and we are proud to support that work.”
